Covid-19 has had an immense impact on all industries across the world, mostly in a negative way. There have been a few fortunate industries and verticals that have been positively affected and the forex industry has been one of those lucky few.
Due to the high volatility of the markets and the closing of retail and other outlets such as sports betting, over the past few months brokers have seen an incredible increase of organic traffic and activity, with no special efforts on their part.
However with the world now starting to gain control of the virus and the quarantine getting looser, brokers must take action if they wish to avoid steep drop offs in their active trader base and revenues.
What actions must trading companies take in order to both retain the newly acquired traders and increase their lead conversion?
The answer is to implement a real-time marketing automation platform that will take advantage of their data and create the most personal customer experience for their traders.
The power of real time automation is that it takes out the guesswork of your marketing and sales efforts, enabling you to engage with your traders based on their historical and current behavior.
Now more than ever brokers need to engage with their traders in absolute real time, responding to their actions, the market events and offering the most updated and relevant contextual content.
This can be the difference between nurturing clients or losing them.
But it’s not just enough to respond fast. The response has to be data-driven, therefore the automation platform must be data driven and respond in real-time to the customers based on all the data.
So what does real-time personalization and automation actually incur? Is it just a matter of the response time? Microseconds, seconds, minutes, hours?
Or is there more to it in order for it to be really effective and a true revenue generator?

We at Solitics, define real time in terms of time, context and content.
In order to be able to respond contextually with the right content, trading companies have to utilize their data.
While the road to success is paved with data, there are a lot of pain points in data collection within the trading industry, such as the multitude of online and offline sources, trading systems, CRM, market events, website, call centers and more into one centralized system and more.
The Solitics’ platform connects to all the distributed data sources, works with the raw data and makes it available in real-time.
